Location is good, near the tram station, walking distance to the Grand Bazaar. The room is small but has all the essentials. View of mosque outside the window is great.Though near the street, the windows are sound-proofing.

Location was perfect - close to the underground station connecting the old town and the airport, but also close to the historic city center. Rooms very clean, floor in corridors not level - you can trip easily. Besides, breakfast could be better for that price.

Location: - close to metro: 2 lines red and green. Red goes directly to airport, green goes to some shopping malls in the new town. - close to tram station that goes to old city: grand bazar, topkapi palace, galata bridge etc - close to MADO: you can serve good sweets and local dishes - the area is very crowded...

The hotel was great, the area was a little dodgy but the hotel stands out as the nicest in the area. Make sure to walk around and taste all the fresh fruits and bakes from the stands and shops. Staff were so friendly and helpful!!

Stayed here for a night and almost every half hour from 9pm to 3am the power cut off for a minute and then came back on. It was uncomfortable as lights went too and there were no back up lights when it happened. Only one English Channel. Breakfast buffet was dreadful. Staff were very friendly and nice.
